Starting in May, 2016, To a Certain Degree fundamentally shifted from a music show with some talk to a talk show with some music. Host Nick Georgoudiou has changed as well, often being mistaken for an actual radio host. The different bits (and pieces) are starting to sound polished. And it appears that guests are enjoying themselves.
Along with enjoying the sound of his own voice, the show shifted to an interview format as a way to help Nick address some of his challenges, specifically:
- Staying inspired and motivated
- Writing on a regular basis
- Looking for new projects
The show consists of a few set segments, including 20 questions, Bad Business Ideas, and a pop quiz.
Nick fell in love with radio and likely the sound of his own voice while volunteering at WUCF-FM 89.9 in the mid-90s. At the time, students were able to volunteer for news and sports broadcasts, as well as on-air shifts.
Learning the news side of the house from Orlando Montoya, he eventually became news director and assistant music director at the station. After a brief stint at a local television station, Nick realized that commercial broadcasting wasn’t for him and ended up in marketing and college admission.
